Computer-Grade Output Power
The PV1800HF efficiently converts DC power from a vehicle battery into 120V AC power for any type of equipment, from heavy-duty drills, saws and pumps to computers and sensitive monitoring equipment. The PV1800HF provides safe, stable, AC output power to help connected equipment perform at its peak. A frequency control feature ensures that devices dependent on tightly regulated AC line frequency, such as computers, VCRs and DVD/CD players, receive clean computer-grade power.
Extended Peak Surge Power
Many tools, appliances and printers require extra power for start-up. The PV1800HF accommodates these peak surge demands by providing up to 200% more output power than its continuous rating. In DoubleBoost mode, it can deliver 3600 watts for up to 10 seconds to support power-hungry equipment start-ups and motor cycling requirements.
The PV1800HF features two sets of diagnostic LEDs to indicate load level (high, medium and low) and battery charge (high, medium and low).
Automatic Overload Shutdown
To prevent damage to the inverter and connected equipment, the PV1800HF will shut down automatically if an overload is detected at the inverter outlets. The red Load Level Indicator LED will flash to alert you that an overload has occurred.
Efficient and Safe for Batteries
With its 94% efficiency rating, the PV1800HF maximizes battery performance to run connected equipment longer. It also features a Load Sense (battery charge conservation) setting to prevent overtaxing your batteries. An automatic low-battery shutdown feature ensures you'll always have sufficient battery power available to start your vehicle.
The PV1800HF features an all-metal housing that's built to withstand vibration and impact—ideal for use at remote worksites, in trucks, RVs and other vehicles, on boats or anywhere that reliable AC power is needed. The housing is constructed with a grooved surface to promote more efficient cooling.
Simple Installation and Equipment Connection
The PV1800HF features integral mounting slots for permanent installation on any rigid, horizontal surface, such as the bed of a pickup truck. Connecting the PV1800HF to your battery system is quick and easy with readily available user-supplied cables. AC power is provided to connected equipment via four AC receptacles on the front of the unit. The PV1800HF is also equipped with an RJ45 port for connection of an optional Remote Control LED/Switch Module (Tripp Lite model APSRM4), enabling you to control and monitor the inverter from virtually anywhere within a vehicle.
Peace of Mind
The PV1800HF comes with a 1-year product warranty and a rapid-response repair/replacement policy that's unmatched in the industry.
